Back to Basics Back Workout

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted a workout so today I thought: hey why not?

Today my partner and I decided to switch things up for our back workout. We called this one a “back to basics” workout because we kept the movements simple & heavy.

I really felt this one. The way this workout starts off is brutal. Brutally awesome. If you’re dying for a good back workout, try this one!


Workout –

  • Rack Pulls – 1-inch below the knee (squeeze traps on the lockout)
  • Bent over barbell rows 
  • Neutral Grip Lat Pulldowns
  • Dumbell Shrugs
  • Cable Pullovers

(Pulldowns  – positioned on the knees for full stretch)

The other good thing about this workout was that for back day, it was a quick one. We don’t always have the luxury of time. Keep all of the sets heavy. I’m definitely looking forward to building this back up over the next year – I need more lower back strength and I would love to gain some width in my lats.

Have a great week everyone!
